The City Council has approved a new ordinance that will prohibit the use or possession of certain types of weapons downtown. 

The surrounding areas include public sidewalks within the area bounded by the west right-of-way line of Main Street on the west, the north right-of-way line of Ogden Avenue on the north, the east right-of-way line of 7th Street on the east, and the south right-of-way line of Carson Avenue on the south. The bill is similar to one adopted by the Clark County Board of Commissioners several years ago regarding the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding areas.

The following weapons will not be allowed:

  • A sword
  • A knife or other bladed edge with a blade longer than three inches
  • A bow and arrow or arrows, including a crossbow
  • A device emitting flames of three inches or higher
  • Any toy firearm, imitation firearm, or replica firearm

Misdemeanor penalties include a fine of up to $1,000 and/or six months in jail.
